's some of the math for you. in the year following president obama's inauguration, the economy lost 4.3 million jobs but adding in the revised numbers, 4.4 million jobs have been created since 2010. that makes the president a net job creator and now 125,000 more jobs created than before he took office. but you know, we got to temper it a bit with perspective. we are three years after the recession. we have still only recovered about half of the jobs lost since 2008 and hiring clearly isn't strong enough to keep up with population growth. not to mention that the kinds of jobs being created are not necessarily higher income jobs brooke? >> here's the other but, though, alison kosik. i can hear people scratching their heads and saying, fishy? this is suspicious. recalculating the numbers with 40 days to go. is there anything suspect here? >> that's a good question because everybody wants the know that. the timing is suspect. but from what we can tell there's no conspiracy here. this is really how the bureau of labor statistics operates. it goes ahead and revised the figures very frequent

of instructive. right now president obama seems safely ahead in all of the polling. pennsylvania is actually the kind of state that mitt romney's promise a year ago he was going to be able to put into play the same way john mccain's promise was supposedly that. the reason why pennsylvania has become so solid democratic they've won in each of the past five elections is largely because the suburbs outside philadelphia, white collar, affluent, right of center economically, left of center social issues have moved decisively towards the democrats. originally mitt romney was seen as a candidate who could appeal to those voters. but he's not making many inroads there. as a result pennsylvania seems out of reach in any realistic scenario. >> he was doing some fund raising there. that may be the major reason while he's there although the aides are being a bit coy pretending they think it's realistic to get the democrats that are spending so much there. wouldn't be the first time. >> we'll see if they put any television money or time in that. >> let's see if they put up there with some money. you've b
